Evelyn is ONE!!

Wow.

I honestly can't believe it's been a year!

Here are some highlights (and there have been many!) from this past year:



Grandpa and his two miracle grand babies, Elijah and Evelyn




First photo shoot with Aunt Lindsay; bow, bracelet, and diaper...what more could a girl want??




Heirloom blessing gown that I made (with huge help from my wonderful mother). Evelyn was SO tiny....it drowned her!




Wearing dress at 7 1/2 months...it finally fits! Check out the handmade lace at the bottom, made by her Aunt Cathy




Porter learned to hold babies like this from his Grandpa :)





Posing for the camera, about 6 months





Personal concert with her Uncle Bracken (now Elder Williams). She was absolutely enthralled!





Learning to sit up in the front yard...leaning...leaning....can you tell that she face planted right after the picture?





Reading the scriptures with Porter before church





Evelyn and Grandma Deloris with matching pink capri pants





Napoleon Dynamite fans will appreciate this pose!





Wearing the red gingham dress from my mom




Introduced to her first nectarine...I ate these every single day for WEEKS while I was pregnant with her!





Like mother, like daughter





Sunbathing with dad at Bartz Field watching people go down the HUGE slip n' slide




Playing in the leaves just before the first snow fall





Her new winter coat...so pretty in pink


Happy Birthday little one! You have made this past year just a little bit sweeter.
